Supplementary notes

According to the source debt securities are "negotiable financial instruments serving as evidence of debt. Short-term securities include all securities with a maximum term of one year, which in principle are transferable against a price that has been fixed in advance. Usually, the obliged interest payments of the debtor have been discounted in the value. Transferable' means that assets can be converted into cash from, or on a date that has been appointed at the moment the bond was issued. This transaction covers treasury paper issued by both the Dutch government and foreign governments, saving certificates to bearer and transferable certificates of deposits, issued by banks. Long-term securities include all transferable securities, which generally do not mature within one year. They are usually quoted at the stock exchange. The interest on long-term bonds is made payable through coupons. Mortgage bonds, notes issued by banks and convertible bonds as long as they have not been converted into shares, also belong to this type of assets."

The source adds: "foreign investments relate to the residency of the borrowing party according article 1 of the Wet financiële betrekkingen buitenland (Std 1980, 321). The borrowing party is the foreign counterparty to which loans or deposits are granted. For shares and bonds quoted on the stock exchange, the borrowing party is the issuer."

Institutional investors are defined by the source as "units that invest capital that is acquired as a result of their activities. These activities are mainly the insurance of pensions and offering private investors opportunities to invest in selected risk profiles. The population of institutional investors contains pension funds, insurance corporations and non-MMF investment funds. The money market funds are excluded from the investment funds."
